to secretary clinton, to the u.n. ambassador, susan rice specifically talking about what they believe were misstatements by the administration or a lack of being, i guess, savvy enough to suspect a terrorist attack, which some republican members like john mccain, like kelly ayotte have been saying was more likely than a spontaneous mob reaction. so there is a bit of the politics, but there is something that steps away from that and they're pushing for answers. they're out of town and don't come back until november. they ask for any information on an interim basis and expect to see hearings, further congressional investigations because of their oversight responsibilities when they do get back in november. it's an issue that is really bringing people it together in one sense, but it's also a very hot political issue when it comes to the level of security for our ambassadors and those hot parts of the world where there's been so much going on. so expect to see a whole lot more of this, chris. >> what we hear from the white house and from officials is that basically you don't want to jump conc

news alert, moments ago the state department can defended u.n. ambassador susan rice after new calls went out this weekend demanding her resignation. congressional critics are angry that ms. rice was talking to the media some four days after a terror attack killed four americans in libya and telling reporters across this nation that it was a spontaneous protest that was behind the attack when fox news and now other news outlets have reported that the white house knew within 24 hours that this was a terror attack and not some spontaneous event. the administration is maintaining that they gave us the information as it evolved and as it came to be known by them. there is, at a minimum, some question about that. the white house is also facing tough new questions about the president's decision to attend a campaign event in vegas within 24 hours of the attack. white house senior adviser david plouffe -- keep in mind, this is the first time they've put the senior advisers out there since all this happened -- but they were on the sunday shows this weekend, and mr. plouffe was challenged outr

nations, susan rice, went on television and try to say the attacks in libya was inspired by an anti-muslim trailer on youtube. they determined in 24 hours that was a terrorist attack. yet they went out on the network news and made the claim that this was caused by something else. that is the problem is that we would simply say i don't expect the network news media to come out and say everything i would say as a conservative american. i would like them to ask questions. we have had a couple of reporters at jay carney asking questions. the problem we have to tell is that president obama has not given a press conference in months. mitt romney was attacked for holding a press conference and the president has not held a press conference since june. and for some reason, we have a press that does not have and the self-respect to demand a press conference. the president obama idea of tough questions is to go to " entertainment tonight" to go to the view. he has gone on "60 minutes." there is not a lot of difference between david letterman asked obama how much he weighs and steve cropp's que
